Re: Learning drums

Sorry, I forgot to reply to the bit about finding a teacher.

I presume you've googled "Drum teachers in xxxx"? You could also look for local groups for musicians on Facebook, and if there is a...

Re: Learning drums

Hello, and welcome to Drummerworld! I hope you really enjoy playing drums :)

A real teacher is definitely the best place to start. It does cost money, but your teacher will give you homework so...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

I've actually had a BERILLIANT idea, whereby I get dear David to sit behind me, put his arms through mine (ooh) and play for me, but it'll look as if I'm doing it. Then everybody will be amazed and...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

It is a very tricksy track. It's only in the past couple of days that I've managed to get a basic grasp of it - and I'm only talking about the short track with the click. I'd been listening to it in...

Re: My Kit Build Begins!

"Mum". I rather aim for the Sheila E end of the maternal spectrum.

But yeah, your discretion is much appreciated!

Re: My Kit Build Begins!

You've done VERY well. Not that I'm any kind of role model, but I prefer 16" crashes, meself.

Mr Madge was talking about holidays the other day. I said, "What about Istanbul?" - and he bit!! ...

Re: Told to hit harder

This chap https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0TMj4KxYn0 is often perceived to be a hard hitter. The video shows, definitively, that he isn't - but he is certainly loud. He says it's all about being...

Re: My Kit Build Begins!

We all told you, we all told you!

I'm chuffed to bits for you, and doubly chuffed that you went where your ears led you.

Re: Congratulations Jules

I haven't, alas, read every one of your 10,000 posts, but every one that I have read has had me howling with laughter and made me considerably more educated at the same time. You have a rare gift,...

Re: Warning, imminent British invasion of New Jersey & New Orleans!

I hope you have a fantastic time, Andy! Give Larry a hug and a kiss from me, but don't let him jump your bones. Whatever that actually means, I'm sure my mother wouldn't approve.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

That is SO cool. Just so long as nobody gets it mixed up with Stickleback :D



That's so sweet.


I don't do nicknames, but I do like aliases. I'm trying (and failing) to put together an...

Re: Wish me luck - could this be my next band?

I do believe you're right.



Uncanny! Estuary English at its very best - well done, sir!

Re: Wish me luck - could this be my next band?

You bet I will - thanks!



Gently with my puppies, if you please.



That's from "Uncle Tom's Cabin". So there is such a thing as American literature, after all ;)

Re: Wish me luck - could this be my next band?

No we jolly well don't. You do. And you drive on the wrong side of the road.

There's a sax/clarinettist interested now. It's growing like Topsy!

Re: Wish me luck - could this be my next band?

I bet you are! Just wondering if I can recycle my Singapore Slingbacks frocks or WHETHER I'LL NEED SOME NEW ONES. I shall certainly need new hair :D

The two singers are horsey, too, which means...

Wish me luck - could this be my next band?

Just saw this ad:

Hi, I'm looking for Keys, Guitar, Drums and Clarinet (and possibly sax and trumpet...) to join a vintage (mainly 1940s era) band. We've performed as a singing duo for the last 5...

Re: Gear fail - handled beautifully :)

Now that's what I call classy!

Reminds me of the time Liam beat his PB at Angry Birds without dropping a beat.

Re: 8 years of professional teaching - time to give it away

a) you don't need left handed pianos
b) if you know you have a lefty student, why can't you, as the professional, reconfigure the kit to their best advantage, before they arrive?
c) yes but only...

Re: The order of things....

Yes, broadly speaking, that's what I'd do, but for me it would depend how awful the crash was compared to the hats. You use the hats more, but you hear the crash more. Whichever is more egregious to...

Re: Just starting at 53 and will need all the help I can get!

Why have I never thought of going to Istanbul on holiday?

On second thoughts, perhaps a DW field trip might be in order :D
